OK Republican Admits Tough Year Ahead

"We don't have any candidates in the field now who are compelling," said Mickey Edwards, a Republican former congressman from Oklahoma who is at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. "It's going to be a tough year for us."

You can say that again....on the other hand we Democrats have multiple compelling candidates! Albeit, some more compelling than others, but altogether great options and opportunities for the American voters. The announced or likely Democratic candidates in alphabetical order include Joe Biden, Wes Clark, Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Mike Gravel, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama, and Bill Richardson.

Biden, Edwards, Obama and Richardson have all visited Oklahoma in the last six months. Clark is an Oklahoma favorite and made a trip here late in 2005. Clinton has good friends in OKC and is expected to visit the Sooner State in the next few months. Dodd and Biden are looking at state visits in May.
